Caturday Snowstorm Videos

It’s been an upside down kind of week. Most of you know how exhausting it is taking care of a sick cat, but Merlin is pushing twenty. I’m relieved to announce he is recuperating nicely from his UTI vet emergency last Saturday. After death sniffing at our door again we’ve dodged another bullet. Merlin has easily used up his nine lives and is in overtime. I spent all day working in bed this week with my patient snuggled under the covers. The best Valentine’s Day gift was seeing him make his way down the stairs by himself for the first time all week and play with a catnip mouse.

Thank-you for your purrs, prayers and well wishes. They really helped us get over the hump.

What are you doing this weekend? Are you practicing your Love Cloud Cat Kisses?

Guess what? It’s snowing again. We’re having our third snowstorm this week and only Odin loves living in a snow globe as evidenced in these short videos. Well, at least at first…

Twelve inches? It’s a cakewalk.

Odin loves diving and digging into the snow but then the snow began to accumulate….Yes, this video is upside down, kind of like my life. One of these days I’ll get into videos but not really motivated when other peeps get gazillions of views and we get like three, LOL.

And the next day he took a swan dive off the porch but got in too deep…

Stay warm dear friends! One of these days I’ll get into videos but I’m not really motivated when other peeps get gazillions of views and we get like zip and no shares. It’s a mystery what goes viral and there can only be a handful of celebrity cats. Poor Odin had his chance on TV but missed grabbing the golden ring. Maybe in his next life…

  1. Hi Layla, just shared it. Loved the pictures of Odin playing in the snow because he reminds us of our Gunther who went over the Rainbow Bridge, But what I really loved was the soundtrack of the rain storm and the GREEN GRASS!! We still have 18 inches of snow up here in Wisconsin, and I have never liked to complain about the weather, but…. Have a great weekend!

  2. Healing purrs for Merlin….
    Love the videos of Odin swan diving in the snow. His beautiful tuxedo markings are especially gorgeous with winter’s artwork as the backdrop.
    The Squeedunk Cats can’t go outside because the Warehouse apartment is on the 9th floor, but they love to watch the snow fall and land on the warehouse across the street. So we live vicariously through Odin, the Swan Dive Champion!

  3. this! It’s the first time I’ve ever seen it! I will happily share anything I see on here.
    hang in there Merlin, and Odin you better be careful, the snow is getting deeper and deeper!

  4. To each his own. Odin looks so pretty against the snow. Funny videos
    Am trying the Slow Blinks, think I got one and I knew then Sasha really loves me.

  5. More Happy,Healing Purrs to our dear friend Merlin. We are so glad to hear that he is feeling better.
    My feral Tiger is a snow cat like Odin. He plows into it like it is nothing! My feral girl Sunny will play and run but only where there is a path shoveled out!
    The rest of the gang tolerates it but prefer being in their boxes or in the house.
    Kepp safe and warm.

  6. Pushing 20!! Oh yeah, so happy he dodged this one!!!

    Healing purrs to Merlin and happy purrs to Odin and Dom Dom!

    My boyz are sleeping on me, while I rest up after the horrible fatigue after shoveling the other day. Hubs is on medical leave and can’t’ the guy downstairs was at work; but the woman next door and downstairs helped dig my car out.

    I think Hubs has another month before he is cleared to drive, after the triple bypass. No shoveling until next winter. Not fond of the five hour a day driving, though, but hopefully, that will only be for about 3 to 5 more weeks.

  7. Odin is quite the “snow man” isn’t he?! Sammy used to love playing in the snow back in his youth – these days – much like his hero Merlin – he prefers to be warm and INSIDE with his Mom. So happy to hear that Merlin is feeling better; good enough to venture downstairs and play a bit! That’s wonderful news……Hugs to all!

  8. We don’t have snow, just an awful crazy wind that destroys trees and old roofs… But when there is snow, we like to play in it as we know that we can go in a cosy and warm home after the game ! Purrs
